Do you have chipped, misshapen, or discolored teeth? Are there gaps in your smile that you just want to fix? There are many ways that a dentist can help you fix your smile from braces and clear aligners to whitening. But when these solutions aren’t an option, a dental veneer might be just what the doctor ordered.
A veneer is a thin cover that sticks to the outside of your teeth. Dental veneers have traditionally been made of porcelain giving your teeth a classic shape and coloring. In the old days, a dentist would take a mold of your mouth using the goopy impression and send it off to a lab for the veneers to be manufactured and sent back to the office, often taking weeks.
At Westover Family Dentistry, we’ve brought the veneer into the modern era using a state-of-the-art 3D printing technique all done in-house. You could go home with a sample veneer on the same day and at less than half the cost of traditional veneers!
How it works
We take X-rays of your mouth and do an exam. If everything looks good and healthy we then perform 3D scans of your teeth and face and design a trial smile. We then print your trial smile veneers with our brand new cutting-edge 3D printer. (It’s actually an Einstein series DLP 3D printer from Desktop Health but that’s just important for the dental tech geeks like us!) If you like what you see we will schedule you for 3D printed permanent veneers at your next visit.
Wear Your Trial Smile Home
You don’t actually go home with a permanent set of digitally printed veneers that same day but we do give you a trial smile. We 3D print the trial smile and have you wear it home. The trial smile veneers only last a day or two but gives you time to see if you want to proceed.
Better Fit For Your Smile
One of the best things about innovative technology like our 3D dental printer is its accuracy. Precision is important in all of dentistry but this new way of manufacturing allows us to have complete control within our own office. This level of control gives us confidence in providing a more comfortable fit with a higher quality finish for your smile.
No muss, no fuss!
Our 3D printer and scanner completely eliminates the need for goopy paste to take impressions and then having to send them out to a lab to create models. We can now do that in a fraction of the time with a clean 3D scan to create the digital impression of your mouth.
Traditional veneers can cost upwards of $2,000 per tooth! By bringing the technology home, we can produce your new smile for less than half the cost. We can even set you up with a digital scan and send you home with your trial smile all for an $800 initial fee in the same day.
Westover Family Dentistry we have the technology that will make it quick and easy to get yourself a million dollar smile without breaking the bank. Ask us about getting 3D printed veneers for yourself today!
